COMPLETED - *** SOLD *** Celestron Omni CG-4 mount/tripod

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm having a bit of a clearout to make way for a new project.  For sale here are a couple of items that have seen very litle use:

1) Celestron Omni CG-4 GEM Mount + Tripod - £125 *** SOLD ***

This is in generally very good condition.  There are a few marks, and scuffs consistent with normal use.  There are also a couple of minor (small) patches of surface rust on a few of the bolts and steel legs.  It has seen very litle use, and has been in storage for the past few years so it is time to find it a good home.  The small rubber tips that go on the very end of the feet have perished, so these won't be included.

It includes tubular steel tripod, 2 counterweights, built in polar scope, built in bubble level and slow motion controls.

Due to size and weight, collection would be preferred from the RG27 area.  If you are reasonably local, I would also consider delivering.

Price: £125, but I am open to offers.  Payment can be made via Bank Transfer (preferred), Paypal or cash on collection

2) ***SOLD*** Celestron Omni XLT 127mm Telescope ***SOLD ***

Again this is in very good condition, and has been in storage for the past few years and has had very little overall use.  A few marks on the dovetail as is to be expected.

It includes a small finderscope, diagonal and a 25mm eyepiece

Can be collected from the RG27 area, I could deliver if you are reasonably local, or can be posted for an additional £8.

Price: £110, but am open to offers.  Payment can be made via Bank Transfer (preferred), Paypal or cash on collection *** NOW SOLD ***

Any questions please do let me know.

      Hi,
      I have a Motor drive for the 130EQ and when I attach and switch it on it drives the RA axis. But once its attached its very difficult to move the OTA in the RA axis manually. Am I missing something? Is there a way to easily couple & decouple the motor so the OTA can be moved manually?
      Is there someone who uses one of these motors who can help me pls.

      Hi everyone - juts purchased my first telescope and am asking for advice on what is best to be seen through this telescope as a starter - have already seen the moon and some distant stars and am comfortable with using all of the eye pieces included. What would anyone recommend?

      Hi 
      I’m attempting to get back into astronomy, previously owned a 150pl reflector but parted company with it several years ago, I like the idea of a Cassegrain style as one of the big factors Of letting the 150pl go. was storage and transportation of It! I am interested in mostly visual observations but would look to take a few pictures here and there OF planets and easy nebula/DSO., I feel that a Schmidt-Cassegrain would be the best suited, my main stumbling point is should I get the 5 or 6 version. Is the 6 under mounted? And is it worth the extra cash, obviously there’s a higher light gathering power on the 6 but would it be much better than the 5, I see that the % of lens obstruction on the seems high! As the secondary mirror looks to be the same size on both 40% vs 14%! Obstruction by area. Any guidance would be very appreciated. I’m not against the idea of upgrading the mount in the future to a eq5 maybe? But want in usable to start with.

      Hello all!
      A question for all you Starsense users out there ...
      When I do an auto align with Starsense, it duly goes through it's routine of moving the scope to different star targets and resolves each one fine (5 targets I believe).  Then it displays on the handset "StarSense Ready".
      At this point the telescope tube is always pointing in some random direction - is this how yours behaves after it finishes alignment ?  Just pointing at the last star it used as a target reference ?
       
      At this point I usually set my scope to go to it's "HOME" position, but whenever I "GOTO" a target it is never in the scopes eyepiece and I have to manually hunt around for it.  (Using a wide angled eyepiece).
      Should I just "GOTO" a target without going to "HOME" position first, or should it not matter ?
       
      NB - All this after precise Polar Alignment using Polemaster.
       
      Grateful for your input
       
      Many thanks
       
      Kind Regards
       
      V.

      Hello There,
      I was wondering if you could help me. I am currently making a setup but I would like to add a good finderscope onto my Celestron Starbright XLT scope. Any ideas would be appreciated.
       
      Kind Regards
      Welsh Dave
